We(with one of my previous employers) had similar problems with berkdb when
using the pybsddb module or the default module with Py.
We then latter wrote our own extensions modules using Boost:C++ and it
worked like a charm. It was easy and we extended only those features which
we needed.
Also, we noticed that our module was faster than the pybsddb nmodule. Wish i
could share the source!!!
